In a world that has switched the definition of epoch from the Holocene to Anthropocene, listening has passed beyond the limitations of the immaterial conventions of assemblages. Then, lockdowns... The reality is the subjective experience now. Via sound arts, literature, and visual arts with cross-modal effects on affect in sensory experience and the mind, the potentiality that I work on is (re)making our understanding of "natural' imaginaries."

The album sale and profit will be split between Umbral Axochiatl, an axolotl conservation charity in Xochimilco, Mexico City and the Scottish Seabird Centre, a seabird conservation charity in North Berwick, Scotland.
In addition, I’m honored to be be featured in Remembrance Species 2020 Exhibition as a sound artist, here is the link.
Full information of the sound works and artists:
My work Catalog of Species was performed and recorded by the wonderful New York-based ensemble sTem in 2017 at Cornell University. I bring the critically endangered Bornean Orangutan and bird interactions to the concert staging in this work. I significantly benefitted from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s archives and my own field recording analyses.
2020 has reshaped the common sense; the ordinariness of our lives has become surrounded with the questioning of the sense of place, risk, environment, territories, and lives within and beyond our own more than ever. As a collective, I’m happy to be part of this project that might touch your lives and I’m hoping to generate an awareness to support the lives that include both human and beyond human species in similar and distant habitats.
